Vital Doncaster have been in touch with the fans of Vital Queens Park Rangers to get their thoughts on striker Rowan Vine.
The striker is currently having a trial at the Keepmoat from Rangers.
The following fans gave their views about the 28 year old who has struggled since breaking a leg in 2008.
When he is fit and regains the hunger he once had he can be a good championship player. We have better players since Warnock took charge so he won't make our squad.
His strengths were running at defenders and laying balls across for other strikers. I haven't seen him play since he broke his leg but understand he put on weight and couldn't get match fit. He could fit in well for you and it could be his last chance.
Once held in high regard at QPR. Joined us at a period where there was more class in the QPR ladies team than in the first team, and he really added something.
Unfortunately, he broke his leg and as never really been the same player. Probably hasn't even been half the player. Do not really see him as a Championship player anymore, but then again under different management and a new environment could be a useful squad player.
It went wrong when he broke his leg. He was never the same after that. Got worse when he did not accept a contract termination and that is when many fans turned on him.
Strengths = good long shot, flexible, determined (he was still trying to fight for the first team and claimed Warnock was forcing him out)
Weaknesses = Slow
He lost the stomach for the fight after his injury and as a result of this was no longer wanted, which soon became abundantly clear.
The thing that I find disappointing about the whole scenario is that he and Patrick Agyemang were side by side in that respect. Patrick worked very hard and earned himself a place back in the set-up, Vine, despite in my opinion being an all-round better player prior to his injury, simply did not show me or evidently the management the same level of desire.
He just needs a change of scenery and maybe he will come good again.
Pretty much echo what others have said. For a short while, he was a class above in a very average side. Then he was injured and it was not there anymore. Unfortunately, he did not seem prepared to work hard enough to see if he could get it back.
He is always happy to have a chat with fans, so ping him direct for his thoughts on joining Donny. @aslrowanvine on Twitter.
Thanks for your thoughts hopefully he can get his career back on track at Doncaster and we can see the form that made him hot property during his time at Luton Town.
